Obsevations on the effect of feeding Labeo rohita (Ham.) with Microcystis aeruginosa Kütz

  • Mirza Rashid Ahmad


Controlled feeding experiments were carried out with Microcystis aeruginosa to study its effect on the fingerlings of Labeo rohita. The observation reveals an overall improvement in the general condition and a marked increase in weight, volume and size of fishes as compared to control.
